After the opening bell, similar to yesterday, price action show early signs of weakness by moving below the opening bell and crossing below multiple swing pivot lows. Once price action provided confirmation of lower highs and we took an aggressive counter trend trade SHORT based on a 3-bar candlestick reversal, and as price slowly went in our favor, we moved our stop to break even and then took 2.0+ points profit.

For ultra-aggressive traders, during the first-hour session, there was only 1 or 2 aggressive entries that could lead to quick small profits.

For traders focused on higher quality trading, there were no good candlestick or chart pattern setups for quick profits.
